Consider the unsaved millionaire who comes to the close of a life that afforded him every luxury. Like all unsaved men, he has but one thought… “Life is almost over. Why do I feel as though I have missed something?"
Indeed, a life lived without God misses the whole point of our existence. Man’s soul is God-given, and man is meant to JOIN his soul with his MAKER. St. Augustine wrote, "Thou hast made us in Thy likeness, and our souls are restless until they repose in thee." Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
God gives man the authority to choose his own path, but not without consequences.
